Clients that have benefited the most from my work over the past 30 years, are people who have difficulties with stress, depression, anxiety and symptoms of trauma. People often need a safe, supportive environment to explore their sources of pain and my approach to working with people inspires courage and connection to one's inner wisdom, confidence and creativity. I work with individuals, couples and adult families, and my observation is that people want to be heard, understood and validated in their relationships, families and workplaces. I love to engage clients in discussions that encourage self awareness and and assertiveness.

Taking Clients Again. Are you going through a transition and feeling overwhelmed and thinking "Now What'? Anxiety and depression are experienced by approximately 1 in 15 people and they often go hand in hand. I come to my private practice with education, my own experience in transitions, as well as helping many others. I also come with compassion and caring because the sadness not knowing what to do next and feeling alone can be scary and overwhelming. I have fifteen years of experience working with individuals suffering from the "Now What?" question resulting in anxiety, grief and depression. First step is hardest - call.

In life and love, I believe we do the best that we can. I also believe in our capacity to learn and grow, heal and change - a worthwhile process I am active to encourage. We all have experiences or relationships that are complex and add stress to our lives. We do not all choose to explore or understand our experiences and relationships and the impact they have, instead often living with a level of stress that is simply physically and emotionally unsustainable. Times of transition or change bring additional stress and can activate our deepest vulnerabilities.

Are you working too hard to make others happy? Do you act like "everything is fine" but inside feel exhausted from keeping it up? Add on anxiety and overthinking as an attempt to rebuild your self esteem and it can turn into a vicious cycle where you are never quite good enough. It can feel defeating to navigate this on your own, but you are in the right place for help. You deserve to cultivate more peace within yourself, let go of your concerns about measuring up and focus on what's truly important to you.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Most Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are certified by one of the main professional associations, mainly the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and will have a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) designation with their name. Social Workers listed in the directory must be registered members of the college specific to their province. To be listed in the directory, Psychologists must be registered with the psychological college specific to their province or territory.

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given the considerable variation in professional regulation and prerequisites across Canadian provinces, some providers may possess significant professional qualifications without necessarily holding professional memberships or being obliged to acquire them. As a result, they may be selectively included without the "Verified" seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists and social workers can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and supervised, practical experience that enable them to do so in Canada.

Psychologists have a master's and/or doctoral degree and have passed both written and oral exams. Psychologists are able to complete mental health assessments and provide diagnostic information to clients as well as provide counselling therapy or psychotherapy. Counsellors and psychotherapists are expected to have a master's or doctoral degree in counselling psychology, social work, or a related mental health discipline and certification by a professional association, such as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Registered Social Workers possess a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Social Work and where possible must be licensed or certified by the provincial government and/or regulatory college.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, the cost of a therapy session in Canada could be between $100 and $200. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. Some types of outpatient mental health services are covered by Medicare, provided these are performed by a licensed mental health professional in the provinces or territory you reside in and who accepts the assignment.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postal code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Professionals licensed by regulatory colleges and those certified by associations such as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association are obligated to uphold client confidentiality unless there is a legal reason that requires them to disclose information. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there is the potential or known harm to the client or others, or a court order, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
